Located on the upper levels of a 16th Street townhouse between Q and Church Street, this 1,120 square-foot condo is spacious by two-bedroom standards in DC, and its location on one of the city’s main avenues puts it within strolling distance of both the 14th Street Corridor and Dupont Circle.

Parking is taken care of for one year; after that there is a rental fee.

White Picket Fence Living in Arlington

While the home itself might not be all that large, this Arlington colonial sits on a large lot that has a huge backyard bounded by that quintessential suburban staple: the white picket fence. Everything has been updated, so the kitchen, bathrooms, basement and plumbing systems are all in very good condition. In addition to the fence, the fact that the home sits within the boundaries of the Arlington county public school system makes it a fairly family-friendly option.
